Cait Sidhe’s Review
If it isn’t obvious by now, I fall head over heels for a second chance romance…and a whole book of them? All I can say is gimme, gimme, gimme! I wasn’t disappointed in this collection of do-overs by all these talented authors. While there weren’t any that I didn’t enjoy, a couple of them stood out over the others.
Weather or Knot by Tracy Brogan was fun for all kinds of reasons. First, meteorologists aren’t the usual romance MCs. There were so many weather-related love puns, and I guess I’m a geek, but they made me giggle a little every time. Like “…just like having your ex-fiancee show up in your driveway, tornadoes were unpredictable.” (It’s the little things really!) Unlike a lot of second chance romance, there wasn’t a whole lot of drama in the backstory, just two people who were young and were influenced to choose another life over the one they had. Allie broke it off with Dylan to pursue her career. She worked so hard to get through school and didn’t want to let her parents down and let her career take a back seat. When they meet up again to go chase storms together, it’s not just the weather that’s captivating! Like rainbows after the storm, Weather or Knot delivers a sunshine-y HEA!
A Morning Glory Wedding by Liz Talley took another spin on the second chance merry go round but in an entirely different manner. This Christian, clean, second-chance romance had a big theme of forgiveness throughout. Brandy is back in the town she grew up in, running her grandmother’s floral shop and prepping for a big wedding. The only problem is she ruined the bride’s first marriage by getting involved with the groom after he swore they were already separated. Brandy has never forgiven herself for falling for Benton and his lies. This one has an unusual love interest as well: the new pastor in town! This story isn’t about two people having the chance to fall in love again, but really, isn’t learning to forgive yourself one of the best kinds of love? There’s a lot of backstory to this one but I really enjoyed getting inside Brandy’s head and the circumstance that convinces her that she’s more than her past mistakes. I really enjoyed this one for the secondary characters too. While it doesn’t have the perfect ride-off-into-the-sunset type of HEA, the ending is pretty adorable!
